If you ‘might’ have contract with ESP, and don’t have a copy, it might be time to request a copy — while they’re still in business

Capture bbbbbbb
Keith Raniere says writing is: “A sacred preservation of human observation.”  Therefore, I am sure he would want you to have a copy of anything he has in writing with your signature.

For all Expians and Espians:

If you believe you may have signed a contract, perhaps a Confidentiality Agreement, with Executive Success Programs or any Raniere-related organization, and were not given a copy of it,  this may be the time to demand a copy.

The companies may not be in existence much longer.

The Raniere organizations are known for deliberately not providing copies of contracts to students. They have been accused of forging contracts, especially when Pam Cafritz was alive.

Of course, in the future, whenever you plan to sign a contract, before you sign, ask the other party to make a copy of the contract. You don’t have to sign, but you will have a true copy of the contract before it is signed that you can keep with you forever and always. If they won’t make a copy, don’t sign the contract.

Generally, a contract has to be executed by the signatories and delivered to be enforceable. But in the land of Raniere, he may think other rules apply.

Here is a sample letter I would send:

Dear Vanguard;

This letter is to put you on notice that I do not possess any written contract between you and/or your company and myself.

I have heard it has been the policy of Executive Success Programs and other companies you control to not provide copies of contracts to students. There have been rumors that contracts have been forged by your agents.

For these reasons, I am writing to request a copy of any contract you believe is in force between you and/or your company and myself, if any exist.

As for myself, I know of no such contract. In the event you believe there is such a contract, I am sure you will agree it is wise to tender that to me at your earliest convenience.

Please mail a copy to the following address……

A self-addressed stamped envelope is provided for your convenience.

Please be sure to include the signature page of any contract with my purported signature.

If I do not receive a copy of a written contract within 20 days, I will proceed on the assumption that you agree there exists no contract between us.

Thank You, Vanguard


Should the Raniere organization respond that they have a contract, but are not obligated to give you a copy, you might respond:

Dear Vanguard;

I am sure you agree that withholding a contract from a party you intend to hold to the terms of that contract is unethical.

If there is a contract, which I only have your word for, it is in our mutual interest for both parties to know its terms.

In addition, a party to a contract can be in breach of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing by refusing to deliver a copy of a contract to the other party, when requested to do so. Failure to tender a contract, if any exists, may be breaching your duty to do everything the contract presupposes that each party will do to accomplish its purpose.

If I do not receive a contract you claim to be in force within 10 days, I will assume you agree there exist no contract between us.

A self-addressed stamped envelope is included for your convenience.

Thank you, Vanguard


Something, methinks, is not smelling quite right about this here Vanguard fellow. He has a noisome odor about everything he does.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
